WaterBotics® is an innovative, underwater robotics curriculum that can be used in traditional classrooms or out-of-school settings. Teams of middle or high school students work together to design, build, program, test, and redesign underwater robots made of LEGO and other components.

Developed by Stevens Institute of Technology’s Center for Innovation in Engineering and Science Education (CIESE) and originally implemented in New Jersey classrooms, it has now expanded to Ohio, Illinois, Texas, Kentucky and the Pacific Northwest as part of an NSF ITEST scale-up program. The goal of the program is to provide hands-on experiences for middle and high school age youth in engineering design, information technology tools and science concepts, and to increase awareness and interest in engineering and IT careers.
